Be sure to use the distance formula to find the distance between Hoffman and Hewitt. Since they are 18.7 feet apart, their lasers will not be able to reach. You can also use the midpoint formila to determine that Chisholm is NOT on the line between Hoffman and Hewitt.

I had a question about a problem that I was working on for my pre-calculus class.

Here's the problem statement:

The area of the parallelogram with vertices 0, м , w , and v + w is 34. Find the area of the parallelogram with vertices 0, A v , A w , and A v + A w , where
A = ( 3 5 1 3 ) .
I got the answer by doing something very tedious. I set v = ( 17 0 ) and w = ( 0 2 ) , and did some really crazy matrix multiplication and a lot of plotting points of GeoGebra to get the answer of: 476 .

Now, I'm 100% sure that was not the fastest way, can someone tell me the non-bash way to do the problem?

Finding explicit formula for intersection of perpendicular bisectors of a triangle

Using Bertrand's postulate which states:
For every integer n 1 there is a prime number p such that n < p 2 n
Prove that there exists infinitely many primes whose decimal expansion starts with 1.
I'm guessing I need to use something equal to 10 in this as it is a decimal expansion, but I'm not seeing where to start?
Any guidance would be great, thank you

How many diagonals does a decagon have?
asked 2022-05-15
"The sum of the squares of the diagonals is equal to the sum of the squares of the four sides of a parallelogram."
I find this property very useful while solving different problems on Quadrilaterals & Polygon,so I am very inquisitive about a intuitive proof of this property.

Show that the orthocenter of ABC lies on P Q , where P , Q , R are the symmetric points of M to this sides of the triangle, M on circumscribed
asked 2022-04-30
If a line L separates a parallelogram into two regions of equal areas, then L contains the point of intersection of the diagonals of the parallelogram.
The figure shows a line L horizontally through the sides of the parallelogram.
This creates two trapezoids and I can intuitively show that if the bases of the trapezoids are not congruent then the areas can not be equal.
I just can not currently see how to relate the intersection with the diagonals.
Any help will be appreciated.
